I don't know anything at all about the kid but what I've read in a couple threads and scouting reports just since he was selected.
And I'm loving the h### out of this pick!
Just what we need. A guy with some size, enjoys playing with contact and a good finishing type shot. If he can fill his frame he sounds like a worker with real good character so the skills should grow as well. Seems either smart or a bit of a natural as well, with the different things he supposedly can do. I am very pleased. I didn't know a guy like this would still be around. Makes me wonder whats wrong with him? But Poile seemed very happy, so I'll go by that.
I was rooting for Etem, as I'd already seen some video of him. And he looks really good to me. But now I like the guy we picked even more. If he pans out he's something we will really need. Maybe a "safe" pick but he does have upside as well.
